The cut offs can be calculated based on the various aspect ratios that
you might find.  The commercial flagger doesn't need to know about
the different aspects, it just detects differences between full, pillar,
and letter (boxed).

The commercial flagger also ignores the area where the logo was found if it
finds one.
